    Anti-gender and sexuality rule is problematic.

    We in the USA live in a country with two major parties.

    One of those parties wants to restrict the rights of non-straight folks.

    Because of those activities, those people are constantly in the news as they use their VERY REAL political power to restrict and limit the rights of non-straights.

    By banning these threads, this site is actively supporting those efforts. Conversation and discussion is how freedom and and rights prosper.

    This is a gaming website, there are plenty of websites that exist that are used to foster such discussion. I suggest you seek those out if you're interested in sincere dialogue.

    This is a gaming forum more Specifically World of Warcraft, you could always take that shit to a political forum.

    Everytime gender or sexuality is brought up, bigots turn it into a shitshow.

    It is not worth the hassle to deal with that here.

    It's a gaming website, they ban those topics/threads because they end up in flame wars while often breaking the sites rules. If you want to discuss those topics then go to Reddit or wherever, not a website dedicated to gaming.

    We have a forbidden topics list for a reason. Those topics universally and without exception result behaviour that isn't acceptable on our forums. They also require an enormous amount of time from our mod team to babysit for when (when, not if) they go bad, time that could be better and more efficiently spread covering the rest of the forum. Consequently, we have opted to just forbid those topics entirely.

    We don't disagree that many of these are important topics that warrant discussion, but unfortunately MMOC has proven that it isn't capable of being a place where that happens. Since our primary purpose is as a video game forum, we're comfortable asking people to find more appropriate venues to have those conversations.
